Fall Fair News

Some information on the Sooke Fall Fair Quilt and raffle

This year the fair will be giving out bigger and better cash prizes. To honour our theme, Embracing Soil and Light we are giving more cash prizes and less clutter with keeper trophies and some ribbons. We have many interesting categories and theme entries this year. Why, we even have a mud pie contest! We will have the popular pie-eating contest with cash prizes as well as the games run by Scouts, Guides and Navy League. All proceeds will go to the groups and cash prizes will be awarded to winners, compliments of Juan de Fuca CRD.

The Sooke Fall Fair quilt raffle is well under way. The lovely quilt is now hanging at the Sooke District office. In July it will be on display at the Reading Room and in August at Shoppers Drug Mart. You will be greeted by ticket sellers at Village Markets, Western Foods and Home Hardware. Tickets are $2. each. The quilt has been appraised at $5,000, second prize is a $250 gift certificate to Home Hardware and third prize two $75 gift certificates, one each for Western Foods and Village Markets and lovely framed prints value $200, donated by the Elrose family.

Watch for the catalogue to come out soon now.

See you at the Fair.
